Anywhere Festival launches 2019 full program

AT TANAWHA'S Bellingham Maze last weekend, Anywhere Festival launched a varied 2019 program for May 9-26.

You'll find shows performed in unusual spaces across Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast.

Check out the website for details of shows near you.

This year's program includes Hayley Condon's Fish Out of Water, Riley Cope's In Flight Entertainment, BYTES' Ariadne, Sunshine Troupe's Luminosity, Salted Pineapple Productions' Fairy Bread Provided, Red Chair's Storyplace and Little Seed's The Tempest.

Tim Ross and Kit Warhurst present Man About the House in various private locations, and D.I.V.E. Collective will wander the streets of Noosa Junction.

Urban Twitters' Dis.connect.ed is a series of devised "twitter” performances: two-minute pieces inspired by truthful lived human experiences that asks the question: how are we becoming ever more disconnected simply by being more connected?

Fragmented tales of love, hate, relationships, connections and disconnections will offer new perspectives on what it means to be oneself and the other in real life and in cyberspace.

The audience will follow the participants on a journey of self-discovery through the world of theatre, dance, visual arts, music and digital media.

Wrong Window

WRITTEN by Billy Van Zandt and Jane Milmore, Wrong Window is a very funny farce.

It is directed by experienced award-winning director Peta Beattie, who has put together a talented cast of actors for your enjoyment, including Thomas Jermyn, Jeffi Schmidt, Caitie Elliott, Samuel Rees, Knox Cameron, Ewen Cameron, Alice Rea and Nick Smith.

The play is a homage to the films of the master of suspense Alfred Hitchcock.

Off-and-on New York couple Marnie and Jeff enter an even more complicated phase of their relationship when they think they spy their cross-courtyard neighbour do away with his wife.

After they draw their torn curtain, the lady vanishes, and suspicion places murder beyond a shadow of a doubt.

The bumbling witnesses sneak into their neighbour's apartment - 39 steps away - and the fun begins.

Among multiple door-slammings, body-snatchings, and a frantic flashlight chase scene, two questions remain: who killed Lila Larsward and ... if she's not dead, then who is?

This madcap comedy whodunnit is at Buderim Memorial Hall on April 5, 6 and 13 at 7.30pm, with matinees on April 6 and 13 at 2pm.

Daylight Saving

NOOSA Arts Theatre presents Nick Enright's comedy Daylight Savings from April 25.

Flick is a successful restaurateur trying to cope with a "gay chef crisis”.

Her husband Tom will be absent on their wedding anniversary, managing a young neurotic tennis pro named Jason.

Jason is having trouble with his psychic. With a sudden visit by an old flame, infidelity could be on the cards.

But Flick's plans for a candle-lit reunion go awry when a stressed neighbour, Stephanie, keeps dropping in and Bunty, Flick's nosy mother, is not getting out of the house.

Written by one of Australia's much-loved playwrights (Cloudstreet, The Boy from Oz), Daylight Saving is a fast-paced comedy about love, loneliness, food and friendship.

It's at Noosa Arts Theatre on April 25 and 26 and May 1, 2, 3, 4 at 7.30pm. Matinees are on April 27 and 28 at 2pm.

Auditions

THE Importance of Being Earnest: Noosa Arts Theatre will hold auditions for this September production, directed by Jane Rivers, at the theatre on May 30 at 7pm and June 1 at 3pm.

With high farce and witty dialogue, The Importance of Being Earnest is hailed as Oscar Wilde's most brilliant tour de force.

It has delighted millions in countless productions since its first performance in London's St James' Theatre on February 14, 1895.

From the play's effervescent beginnings in Algernon Moncrieff's London flat to its hilarious denouement in Jack Worthing's country manor in Hertfordshire, this classic masterpiece keeps audiences entertained with its ingenious plot twists and inspired dialogue.
